10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
In Part II of our Webinar series, Post High School and College Planning: Helping Our Students with Disabilities Prepare for Their Future and Find the Right Path, Jane Thierfeld Brown, EdD, will answer your questions about college readiness and navigating the college process.
This will be a live forum and will not be recorded or posted to social media.
Transitioning from high school to college or employment can be difficult for any student, but especially for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The structure and predictability provided in high school are gone. The social and academic supports these students may have relied on during their high school years are suddenly removed. The organization, communication, social and “life” skills required in a college or employment setting are heightened. Our role as “parent” changes legally when our “child” turns 18. For all these reasons, it is important to encourage students with ASD to develop critical academic, social and life skills while in high school so they can transition to college or employment successfully.
